While many of you are getting ready for the Fall’16 season to arrive, I’m gearing up for a much needed vacation in Europe!  Ahhh, I am so looking forward to spending some quality time with my husband and relaxing as we enjoy our 10 year wedding anniversary in the Mediterranian.  I have the tendency to over pack anytime I travel, and am pulling together a solid capsule wardrobe with the essentials to get me through three weeks of traveling.  I’ve been testing out my outfits before we leave to ensure everything I’m bringing is comfortable, and here’s a little ensemble that I plan on wearing while we’re away.

Outfit Details:

This adorable peasent dress is from Barefoot Contessa Boutique.  It’s a cut that is extremey versatile and timeless, easy to wear and light-weight for traveling.  I styled it here with my beautiful tan leather sandals from Winners, which are neutral in color and work with my other outfits, stylish and comfortable for walking.  I accessorized the look with the my big sun hat from H&M (from last season) in case it gets a little sunny while we’re sight seeing, and my straw bag to carry my essentials; creating a sophisticated yet casual “Euro Chic” look.

Tip:

  To transition this dress for the Fall, try styling it with a pair of over the knee boots, a light-weight turtleneck knit shell and a leather jacket.
